I'm surprised no one has said anything about air vents. I have to have my air vents all even. All pointing at the same height. Can't have any closed or at some extreme angle.

I almost always back into a spot if I can.
If I'm stuck behind someone slow and I want to pass, I'll usually turn my headlights and foglights on.

Always have to have a roll of shop towels near me just in case.
Always have to have something to drink with me, usually because my trips are at least 30 minutes one way unless I'm going to the post office or the gas station.

I tend to drive with 2 feet. Guess it comes from my last 2 cars (and my current Cruiser) being standard.

Always use the parking brake. No matter if its a steep hill or flat ground. Car goes in neutral, brake on, trans into park. Though it amazes me how many people (including shop techs) sheepishly come to ask (or call me) to find out how to unlock the parking brake on this car. Still says "Push to Unlock" on the pedal, but everyone reaches down looking for the handle to release it. So I've made exceptions and parked without the brake if I know someone else is gonna have to drive it for some reason.

Everyone must have a seat belt. Don't slam my trunk and drop slam my doors. You don't use your momentum of getting in a car to close a door. You sit down first then close the door behind you.
Our cars unlock when the car is turned off. Stop trying to break my F*ing door handle because the door won't open. Serious I may punch the next person in the side of the head if I can hear the plastic on my door handle and door panel creaking as they try to open the door.

I'm the same way with the vents and backing into a spot. I always back in, and always adjust my vents back to being even after someone moves them or bumps them.

omg the door lock thing is so annoying.. people ALWAYS start yanking on my door handle before i put the car in park.. its like seriously dude do you need to get out of the car that fast?

Or when people try to open the door repeatedly before i unlock my car.

My trunk has to be slammed because its broken, but when you slam my doors I get really mad.

So far, only one person has respected my vehicles as much as I have, and that was my last ex. She would never touch anything..she would start sweating and take her coat or hoodie off before she would say anything about the temperature, and the only time she'd put the window down is if I asked her to. One of my other friends once adjusted the seat, all the vents on the passenger side, turned the temperature back, all within 1 minute of her getting in my truck. If she wasn't my best friends' sister, I would have just told her to get out on the spot. I can handle people slamming my doors, they close a little weird.. but not when they're trying to open it before I unlock them. I don't even like it when they pull the lock themselves..

I always try to park 2 empty parking spaces away from other cars.

I keep a full stock of exterior and interior cleaning products in my trunk at all times. I use my california car and wheel duster almost every day. No eating in the car, no smoking, and don't touch my damned vents. I always look for the end spot in a parking lot. I'm sure I have other OCD tendencies but I'm glad I'm not alone.

The vent thing is a big thing for me...I also usually like to back into parking spots too but I kinda need to be able to see out the back window better to feel safer doing that. Everything has to be off in the car before I shut it off. Also no trash and no eating inside the car...its just as quick to just go in and it as it is to eat and drive IMO. Everybody has to have seat belts too...the last person that didn't buckle up went flying across the back seat because I saw he wasn't buckled in...he buckles up now and another thing is I can't stand any rattling noise in the car unless it is because the music is up loud...speaking of which I have to find that one I heard last night....
